  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 8 cakelets

Ingredients

Cakelets

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 2 Tbsp bourbon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Glaze

  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp bourbon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease and flour a 3-cup cakelet pan. Cook butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until it foams, turns clear, and then turns a deep brown, about 6 minutes. Pour brown butter into a glass measuring cup and let cool slightly.
  2. Whisk together flour, sugar, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Pour cooled brown butter into a medium bowl and whisk in brown sugar, egg, egg yolk, buttermilk, bourbon, and vanilla until smooth. Add to flour mixture and fold in until combined.
  3. Fill each cavity 2/3 full and tap pan sharply to remove air bubbles. Bake for 20 minutes, until cakelets are golden, spring back to the touch, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool cakelets in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes before inverting onto rack to cool completely.
  4. For the glaze, whisk together melted butter, powdered sugar, cinnamon, salt, bourbon, vanilla, and milk in a small bowl. Set rack with cakelets over a piece of wax paper. Dip cakelet tops into glaze and let set on rack before serving.
